arctic freeze Reviews
I do appreciate the fact that the team doesn't always come in first. But do all of the other teams have to be such jerks?
I registered a book at BookCrossing.com!http://www.BookCrossing.com/journal/14462014
This is a review of both Great Reef Games and Arctic Freeze.I was fairly critical of the first book of the series, Rain Forest Relay, but I liked these titles better. I still think the scientific facts presented between chapters are boring and superfluous, as so much science is already covered in the stories themselves, but the characterizations of the team members, and the team's struggle to reach first place and remain there ring very true. Of the two books, Great Reef Games has the more engaging narrator. Sage's voice is memorable and easy to like, whereas Dev is more generic and therefore less interesting. Arctic Freeze, however, has a truly exciting and adventurous plot, which, despite being awkwardly foretold by Dev's dream at the start of the story, really creates a suspenseful and exciting reading experience.This series does something different than many other sets of chapter books, so for that reason alone, I think it's worth having in libraries and checking out from them.
My nephew and I are loving this series! We are learning so much as we enjoy the adventure. We both agree that we'd love to be contestants on The Wild Life.Each book seems to center on another member of the team and this one was mostly Dev's journey. He is working hard to prove he isn't just a science kid. But he also learns that his science abilities really help the team.The part with the dog sled race literally gave me goosebumps all over.
In the last chapter my son was upset when they said in the past they had to shoot injured dogs. :-( I would recommend not reading that information to kiddos!! Other than that, it's an exciting series. But we've forgotten who's on what team and if they've won or not. Hopefully they'll recap in book 4.
It was pretty scary when Mari and Dev got stuck in the quicksand. I'm glad Dev's quick thinking got them out.
This time they have to go to Alaska and find the clues over there. Read the book to find out what happens! I really like this book. It is super cool. You have got to read it!
I preordered the next two books in the series and I'm in my thirties... I know, I know. I'm very, very cool.
I liked the attempt to integrate information about animals and science but the storyline was weird and not interesting at all. It was an attempt to be suspenseful and adventurous that fell short
